    Cool NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2018-12

    .
    Welcome to Day 12 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (NYNGD)!

    Thanks for the kind words and comments on Saturday's NYNGD #2018-11!

    Ahhh, firmly in the home stretch. Today's masterpiece is a December 2018 Axis BFR in Butterscotch. OK, I know what you're thinking -- "OK, cool. But it's just a stock EBMM from the latest (few weeks ago) BFR run. What's so special that you'd hold this until late in the NYNGD run?"

    Answer: (A) We still have 9 guitars to go, so even though we're over the hump, we still have a long way to go!; (B) this guitar is awesome.

    Simply awesome. First off, sure, a great flame top (although you all know I am a quilt man) in a beautiful Butterscotch Burst finish.

    But the neck. Oofah. The neck is amazing. It's a stunning piece of roasted birdseye maple -- so it has the birdseye that we used to expect from non-roasted EBMM necks, but then it's roasted. And the fretboard is a flawless ebony with an absolutely perfect cream binding and lovely white pearl block inlays. I am super impressed by the workmanship on this fret job -- the frets end shy of the binding, so you can't see (or feel) the fret end. It really is a work of art and it's clear why these necks are on BFRs -- the additional work must be significant compared to a standard EBMM neck.

    As if that wasn't all good enough to qualify for the home stretch, this guitar sounds REEEAAALLLY good. I just plugged it in while doing this writeup and didn't come up for air for 35 minutes. That good.

    I cannot say how pleased I am with this guitar. You owe it to yourself to check on out at your local dealer. Or call Pete. Really. That good.

    I'll be back tomorrow-ish with another NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Day! Thanks for looking everyone!

    (The back story in case you're new to my NYNGD: For the past couple of years I've done a fun thing that most of you I think enjoyed, and I thought I would do it again this year. Every year, I am a slacker about keeping my Guitar Gallery up to date... So, as a fun holiday thing, let's launch a guitar in the Guitar Gallery each day leading up to New Years Eve! In the past I've received PM's about my collection and whether I play all of these guitars. The same question came up during my NYNGD posts a few years ago and my answer was pretty detailed and well thought-out, so please check it out here!)

    (Also, in case anybody gets any funny ideas -- these guitars are not at my house. They are all in my very secure and alarmed studio facility. I usually only have two guitars floating around the house...)

    Killer guitar Jeff! And yes, the block inlays, binding and Birdseye really set this model on fire.

    As of late I’ve been playing the AX series by Sterling. And I can tell you this body and neck has quickly jumped to my absolute favorite to play. Can only imagine the BFR series

    Hey guys.

    Sorry I am delayed on the next NYNGD. Just swamped at work so I am working like 18 hour days, which leaves no time for guitar photography if I am going to sleep. Standby, next guitar coming in a day or two. Hint: one-off Luke III.
